With his first solo show, “Spring Microcosm”, opening at New York City’s Garvey|Simon Art Access in Chelsea, Morrison’s work is a quietly, almost hauntingly beautiful reflection of nature. It’s antidote and antithesis to the fast pace of metropolitan life; causing one to pause and admire, if only for a moment, the special beauty of nature in the springtime.
Looking closely to explore the intricate details of nature’s seemingly simplest forms, artist David Morrison’s vivid colored-pencil on paper creations bring to hyper-realistic life the inherent beauty, delicacy, and texture in the organic objects most of us take for granted.
‘Spring Microcosm’; is Morrison’s personal fascination with the role of man in his desire to control, define and recreate his environment. A manifestation of the cycle of life, a history of transformation, that is not always as natural as it should be.
Morrison’s work is included in numerous public and private collections including The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The Smithsonian American Art Museum, The National Gallery of Art and The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC; The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO and The Portland Art Museum, OR to name a few.
The exhibition can be seen at Garvey|Simon Art Access, which is located in Chelsea at 547 West 27th St. SUITE 207, NYC 10001, between 10th and 11th Avenues.
